One of my biggest pet peeves is people that insist on talking or texting during a movie. It’s so distracting and rude. Seriously, can you not disconnect or shut up for an hour and a half? It’s basic theater etiquette and it’s not that hard.

Well anyway, I’m glad to hear that a theater in Austin, Texas doesn’t put up with said behavior. Alamo Drafthouse Cinema posted a voicemail message left at their office by the texter they kicked out. Here’s what they had to say about it on their blog:

“Recently, we had a situation where a customer persisted in texting in the theater despite two warnings to stop,” the blog post reads. “Our policy at that point is to eject the customer without a refund, which is exactly what went down that night. Luckily, this former patron was so incensed at being kicked out, she quickly called the office and left us the raw ingredients for our latest ‘Don’t Talk or Text’ PSA.”

Listen to her voicemail message to the theater below and I’m certain you’ll enjoy the subtitles they included based on what she says.

Pop-Tart Pick: Simon Curtis

In: Calan, Music

So yesterday on June 7th, Simon Curtis released his second studio album titled “R?” and I have to say it’s pretty fantastic. I fell in love with the boy back when I randomly came across 8Bit Heart and got to download it for free. Also fellow cast member Redd did a post on him back in 2010 just after he announced this album. My favourite songs from 8Bit Heart were probably “Beat Drop” and “Diablo,” you can still pick up your free copy of the album here on his website: Simon-Curtis.com.

For the new album Simon has released it on iTunes and it has 14 awesome new tracks for us to tickle our eardrums with. My favorites that are currently on repeat at the moment are “Superhero” and “Flesh” for sure. Also the remix for Superhero is pure ear bliss so be sure to check that one out as well. The new album is defiantly a step forward for Mr. Simon Curtis who is doing in right in my books. I enjoy the catchy hooks and his own individual flare for pop music, it’s needed for sure.

BEST.PAGEANT NEWS.EVER!!! My woof daddy Man Crush Andy Cohen has been tapped to co-host this year’s Miss USA pageant. I’m an out-and-proud beauty pageant junkie, so this bit of news excites me beyond belief. He’s a much better co-host than last year’s Curtis Stone which BTW, I never understood the fascination with.

Bravo exec Cohen who hosts all “The Real Housewives” reunions and “Watch What Happens Live!” has exhibited he can handle middle-aged crazy women vying for screen time. Hosting a show with 50 beautiful women on their best behavior should be a breeze. If you’ve ever seen him interact with the respective Housewives, he plays “guuuurlfriend” quite well. I wonder if he’ll showcase some of his awesome queeny ways on the show. I hope so.

This morning was Meredith Vieira‘s last day on The Today Show after five years on the hit morning show. No doubt the 57 year old is going to enjoy sleeping in for the rest of the week!

Her whole “Today” family was there to send her off: Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, Al Roker, and Natalie Morales. They then showed a montage of Vieira’s best moments on the show (both funny and serious). The video is longish, but totally worth watching. From her first day, to getting attacked by Robin Williams, to getting surprise kissed by Russell Brand, to hanging with Obama in the White House, and so much more. She has a lot to be proud of. She’s covered some pretty incredible stories and interviewed some amazing people. I’m a big fan of hers and look forward to seeing what she does next. Donovan and I had the pleasure of meeting her when she was here filming for the Olympics (hence the header photo).

Honestly, I don’t think they would have been able to make such a funny and touching video if it were any of the other anchors leaving the show. Meredith certainly left her mark on “Today” and will be missed. Watch the video below!

Is James Franco Releasing An Album?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Music, Tyrell

Music blog Pitchfork is reporting that up next on James Franco’s to-do list is releasing his first music album. The album is set to be released later this summer. He will be teaming up with DJ /Rupture on the project with a possible appearance from video performance mate Kalup Linzy who often performs in drag.

Kalup and Franco began their musical journey together when James invited Linzy to perform with him on his brief return to ABC’s General Hospital. The album is titled Turn It Up and will be distributed through /Rupture’s label Dutty Artz.

The album will be available for digital download on July 9th as well as a limited edition 7″. The EP will feature the tracks Rising (Both Sides Now) and the album’s title track Turn It Up (So We Can Turn It Out). It looks like James really likes his parenthesis. The album was produced by DJ /Rupture and Brent Arnold. I personally cannot wait to hear what this little piece of ear candy will sound like.

Having just gone to Winnipeg Pride this past weekend, I’m well aware that Pride Season has begun. For many gymbots, this is where their gym routines go into overdrive as they strive to have the perfect body. In this funny mock exercise video released by Tourism Toronto in partnership with Pride Toronto, they poke fun at getting your body ready for pride by teaching you the “Pride Pump 2000X“.

“With a parade that is watched by over 1 million festival goers annually, Toronto Pride has grown into one of the largest Pride Celebrations in the world. Championing the rights of all facets of Toronto’s diverse queer community, from Family Pride to the Dyke March to the Trans March to a boisterous street festival with everything in between, Toronto Pride has something for every queer.”

The video has been criticized by Toronto Life in that they believe the video just reinforces all the gay and lesbian stereotypes that are often deemed to be inappropriate jokes. They wonder how Toronto Pride can expect to be taken seriously with a video like this. Watch the video below followed by Toronto Life’s take on the video and then share your thoughts on it.

Meet Hayden Panettiere’s New Man

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Former Heroes star Hayden Panettiere hasn’t always had the best of luck in the romance department… or, finding someone that may be more age appropriate for her dating style. Let’s begin with her first public romance to co-star Milo Ventimiglia. He was 31 and she was 19. And now Hayden has severed ties with her now ex Wladimir Klitschko who is 35; Hayden is 21. So I’m sure her parents (and friends alike) were wondering if Hayden was ever going to find someone her own age and speed. It looks like the cheerleader has finally, just maybe, met her match.

It was rumored that Hayden had been spotted with New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and that they were dating but in actuality, she is seeing his team mate, seventh round 2011 draft pick Scotty McKnight. Scotty is 23 years old and a wide receiver (insert joke here). He is originally from California but graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He currently holds CU’s all time record for receiving touchdowns and receptions. No big deal. So how did the two meet?
